Memory Training Games

More List Twists

Here's another set of memory training games for you to try on your own or with a friend.

You'll simply study a list of words for a set amount of time, and then answer some very specific questions about the word list. Simple-to-follow directions and four new word lists are included here. 

List Twists 5 - 8

Begin by downloading these printable instructions which explain the simple process used in these brain training games.

Try the first four List Twists (1 - 4) on this page before moving on to the more challenging lists below. 

Auto mechanic and tools

Then you'll want to move on to four new, more challenging lists (5 - 8). These new lists include occupations, vegetables, tools and gemstones.

Do these sound easy or difficult to you? It often depends on how familiar you are with the topic. 

So, before you start these memory training games, you may just want to brush up on items that might appear in one or more of these lists. 

Use these links for the four new memory quizzes:

Tips and Tricks

In this new set of lists, you'll be asked to learn longer lists of more complicated words. So what's the secret to success? Here are two tips:

1. Look for links between the word spellings. For instance, in some of the lists, I've purposely put three words next to each other that begin with the same letter. On one list, I placed all the two-word items together.

2. Look for links between the word meanings. Sometimes words that naturally "go together" are next to each other.

Find these connections and try to remember them. If you can remember one of the words in these "sets," chances are good you'll remember the other ones, too. 

Good luck!
